Recipes for Healthier Eating. I just made these (8/28) and used Kashi GoLean Crunch as the 'granola cereal' and they did not work at all. Also, I tried a 9x13 baking dish, but had to do a 7x11 in order to get them to fit. I baked for 23 minutes, but probably needed closer to 30. The top looks great, but the bottom is barely cooked. I recommend either a) use real granola cereal, or b) don't make these :) Good luck!

Made these according to the recipe, but did bake them for almost 28 minutes, & everything turned out just fine! They were a little thin, I thought, but then I've had store-bought "energy bars" that were just as thin, so . . . Anyway, we are enjoying them primarily as a mid-morning or mid-afternoon snack! Thanks for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed in Bargain Basement tag]
